Earlier this year, XSEED Games announced that Unchained Blades would be coming to North American players later this year. The publisher has just announced that the Sony PSP version will be coming out next week exclusively on PSN.
Unchained Blades follows the story of the dragon emperor, Fang, who after being stripped of his powers by the goddess Clunea, embarks on a journey for revenge and to regain his true form. Arrogant and vengeful, Fang is joined in his quest by a cowardly golem prince, a shy medusa priestess, a young phoenix clan maiden, and many other mythical beings seeking to meet with the goddess.
Due to the collaborative nature of the game's design, each of the 13 main characters was created by a different artist. The main character Fang was designed by Pako, most famous for his work on the Shining Force series, while other characters were fashioned by artists such as Toshiyuki Kubooka (Lunar), Shinichiro Otsuka (Summon Night), and Kazushi Hagiwara (Bastard!!), to name a few.
The Sony PSP version will be exclusive to PSN and will retail for $29.99. The Nintendo 3DS version is still set for a Fall 2012 release later this year.
